Dallas Black Dance Theatre
Through expressive, powerful movement, the performers of the Dallas Black Dance Theatre inspire awe in audiences as they leap across the stage, arms extended, toes pointed, heads held high. The original professional dance company’s success led to the creation of a second company, Dallas Black Dance Theatre II, a semi-professional group that performs locally and across the nation. The companies present contemporary productions of modern, jazz, ethnic and spiritual dance composed by choreographers of national and international acclaim. The Dallas Black Dance Theatre is also home to the Dallas Black Dance Academy, a school that offers classes in ballet, jazz, tap and liturgical dance for children starting at age 4.
The Dallas Black Dance Theatre is the city’s oldest continuously operating professional dance company.
